Looking for a shapefile of the entire county of Cumbria (UK) to use in ArcMap.

Any ideas on where I can find one?

This question came from our site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals.

  • I think questions seeking data, even when it is spatial data, are usually better researched, and if necessary, are asked at the Open Data Stack Exchange. – PolyGeo Nov 22 '16 at 22:46
  • gadm.org will give you shapefile of every county in the UK, as long as you're in non-commercial purposes domain. From that you can filter. – BradHards Nov 22 '16 at 22:47

Ordnance Survey as the national mapping agency of the UK should always be your first stop for this sort of data. You need the BoundaryLine dataset which contains modern and historical county boundaries. It is available as a free download from the the OpenData section.
